|Military Ballistic Protection
To meet the Military’s growing requirement for ballistic protection, Norplex-Micarta has developed ShotBlocker®, a specialty line of high performance thermoset composite sheets, pre-pregs, and molded shapes. This fiber glass-based material is resistant to projectiles, ricochet, heat, and fire, making it suitable for the most threatening military missions.
Typically used to arm vehicles and guard stations, ShotBlocker provides exceptional structural strength, plus both ballistic and ricochet resistance against small arms fire, blasts, and fragmentation. Lighter than steel, ShotBlocker is easy to handle and machine, allowing for ease of installation and repair.
ShotBlocker materials meet the most stringent military requirements and are compliant with Mil-L-64154, MIL-DTL-64154B, Class A, Code 1, MIL-DTL-64154B, Class B, Code 2 standards as well as UL-752 performance level standards for ballistic levels 1 – 5 and NIJ Standard 0108.01 Threat Levels I – IV.
